Under The Sun echoes flashes of sorrow and anger at travesties long past that haven¿t been brought to the forefront since Morrison¿s Beloved. Think that the struggles of the past have been forgotten? Growing too far from the sacrifices of others? Let Glenis Redmond bring you back with works like ¿Read the Signs¿, which posits that ¿Jim Crow might be gone, but his first cousin masquerades as devastation.¿

Equally brilliant flashes of imagery occur in other samples, such as the telling line ¿You bolt like a stallion¿ in the dedicated ¿Step Sister¿ and ¿Singing to her bones¿ in Simple Act. In fact, with its focus on early gospel symbolism, singing and songs come into play quite often, and readers are also treated to wisdom from astrological and Buddhist-leaning sages.

Between the masterful manipulation of words and the heartbeat-like rhythms, these pictures and songs are a veritable privilege to read.
